RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

The No. 1 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Swanson went from leading his Vanderbilt team to the College World Series in June to debuting with short-season Hillsboro of the Northwest League in August. Swanson, who missed time with a concussion after getting hit in the head by a pitch in instructs, was only able to play in 22 games for the Hops, hitting .289 with one home run. He also tallied seven doubles, three triples and a tidy 14:14 K:BB. He should be a good, not great, defensive shortstop who bats for a high average with 15-20 homers, while hitting first or second in a big league lineup during his peak years. Swanson likely won’t help fantasy teams in 2016, but dynasty league owners could see him as early as 2017, as he has the polish and makeup to move quickly. The key piece in the offseason trade that sent Shelby Miller to Arizona, Swanson is unquestionably the Braves' No. 1 prospect.
